Despite the success of the Florida Panthers, coach Paul Morris has been holding back some negatives for the past few days, especially the work of the referees.
His team certainly won 4-2 in Game 1 of the second round against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, except that he took note of decisions by officials Kelly Sutherland and Trevor Hanson on the ice at Scotiabank Arena. In fact, he wrote down the penalties imposed during the evening and found that his troops visited the dungeon more often than the Leaves. Watch the footage in the video above.
Also, when Sam Bennett received a minor double kick penalty for high stick against Ryan O’Reilly with less than 40 seconds left in the game, Morris challenged the referees with his hands crossed on his chest: one pointed to the number 1 and the other to the other. , 5. All called the five penalties awarded to the Panthers plus the only penalty from the Toronto clan.
After the duel, the driver told the media that he was not surprised by these stats.
“We have simply accepted the fact that we will find ourselves on the bench more often than the opposition. Because that is what has happened in our last eight matches.”
The second meeting of the Panthers-Leafs series will take place Thursday at 7 p.m. on TVA Sports.
